    I was thinking about buying an Ibanez SR 905 and I was just wondering if anyone here has played them and could give me any imput on what they thought of it. I play mostly rock and a lot of funk too sort of like 311 or early Incubus or RHCP. I want a bass that has a lot of low end and good slap tone. Any advise would be great.

    What is your budget?
     
  3. I havn't played the particular bass that you happen to be questioning, however, I have played alot of Ibanez basses, including Prestige models, and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed by an Ibanez bass guitar, and my brother agrees and holds up on the guitar end too. IMO, Ibanez is one of the absolute best brands out there today, Q.C is top notch, and the instruments they're putting out are extremely versatile, well built, and priced with the average player in mind. Great stuff man!

    I own the natural finish model from 2004
    Picked it up for 560 with the hardcase, plus 35 for some chrome XL flats

    Amazing bass, I love it. Sounds great, feels great, just all around a great bass. The neck is VERY thin, but not to the point it isnt playable, it is very comfortable. The Bart MK1 pups and EQ seem to be fine as far as I can tell. VERY versetile, I can get many different sounds out of the bass. Weight isnt bad at all, string spacing is a bit tighter than the other fivers I have played, but I find it comfortable, and easy to play.

    You wont be disappointed, it is an amazing bass!

    The second I played it, I loved it. Mine is a natural finish. I've heard the the neck warps, but I have had zero trouble. I play mostly rock.

    Love the feel of the B string and the sound of the pickup.

    Switched to Chrome flats.
